The Bentway has been taken over by a retro rollerskating pop-up and they’re officially opening to the public this weekend.

Retro Rolla is set to open on June 19, turning the popular winter skating path into the city’s newest summer-long pop-up.

Time slots are now available to book for this weekend but if a preferred time or skate size is not available, new skate time slots get released every Monday at 1 pm.

This is an adults-only pop-up therefore ID is required to prove you are older than 18.

It’ll work similarly to the winter event where guests will be able to rent rollerblades for an hour. They’ll then be able to cruise through The Bentway path.
